Page House started over 50 years ago as a simple idea, to be in the business of helping others. As a result of Civilian Exclusion Orders after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Japanese Americans faced relocation to internment camps in very poor conditions or the option to move inland, hundreds of miles from coastal cities. However, to move was expensive and little time was allowed for relocation. Lowell Sherratt Sr., then a salesman Aggler and Musser Seed Company, had become friends with a number of Japanese-American farmers. When the Civilian Exclusion Orders were release in 1942, he quietly volunteered to help 10 families move to Page Ranch, about 30 miles west of Cedar City, Utah.
The move from California to Utah was not an easy one, and the convoy of Japanese-American families, led by Lowell, was stopped numerous times and told they could not continue. In the face of opposition Lowell stood on the side of the families he was helping, eventually ensuring their safe passage to the ranch. Lowell’s decision to help was not a popular one but he believed in people and humanity.
Eventually, all 10 families moved away from the area as World War II came to a close and tensions eased. Lowell Sherratt Sr. eventually sold his ownership of the ranch and went on to start a food and grain company, Honeyville Inc. However, the Page House, originally built in 1900, serves as a reminder of what Lowell Sherratt Sr. stood for: selflessness, loyalty, and honesty. Lowell maintained a personality of kindness and a desire to give back throughout his life, often in quiet ways. It was about helping, not receiving recognition.
Lowell Sherratt’s original food and grain business, Honeyville Inc. has continued to grow and serve other businesses. Page House, on the other hand, was created as a way to build on Lowell’s heart of kindness and giving by providing the highest quality food products for every home.
